1 tc For MT reading שָׁגַל (shagal, “ravish; violate”), the Syriac, Targum, and Vulgate presume the less violent שָׁכַב (shakhav, “lie with”). The unexpected counterpart to betrothal here favors the originality of the MT.

2 tn Heb “it” (so NRSV), a collective singular referring to the invading nation (several times in this verse and v. 52).

3 tn Heb “increase of herds.”

4 tn Heb “growth of flocks.”
